I thought Bit Trip Runner was impossible until I realized I was playing it on PERFECT difficulty. Feel like an idiot. But I still dont want to downgrade my difficulty

Runner 2, on the other hand...piece of cake

4) Starting new franchises that are mediocre because their visionaries are gone.
5) Shitty DLC/DRM practices.

I'm sure there is more but it's too sad for me to think on because they used to be my favorite developer. They are basically doing the opposite of Sega's "realizing their historical identity and good relations" (aside from the Shining Ark incident) practices. Street Fighter IV is the only thing they have properly handled, but that's still a far cry from the industry-inspiring new franchises they would launch about every 5 years.

Maybe with Konami and Namco coming around now they'll start to realize what is cool in terms of business practices, but I don't see them realizing what they lost in terms of identity and innovation and regaining it any time soon. There has been a pretty constant stream of bad moves made for a long time now.

Of course, that's not counting the first 448 tries.

I have put the game on this list after trying 3-9 again and again. So difficult.

It works on all three platforms and was developed by a Japanese company (or at least paid for by one).

That's more than most Japanese companies accomplished this entire generation, performance-wise.

not really

what are some other examples of engines designed for console games that run without any issues consistently throughout all it's games even on mid-end PCs?

Avalanche and.. uh

even UE3 can run pretty bad and has the awful texture pop up


RE5 ran without a single hitch on my old gtx 560 out of the gate, max settings, without having to mess with anything or force any sort of graphical option through drivers and it looked fucking great. That's getting rare these days.

Is RE6 the first Capcom game where they've let another studio handle MT Framework? It was ported by QLOC.

I thought I remembered Blue Castle Games saying that Dead Rising 2 couldn't use MT Framework, because Capcom was super protective of it, but I guess that must have changed when they stopped doing as many ports in house.

I think it was mostly due to the Japanese-only documentation, although I have no idea how QLOC got around that.

Marvel 3 was co-developed with Eighting and Street Fighter IV 3D, which runs on MT Framework Mobile, with Dimps.

Huh, I thought it was more to do with all the documentation was in Japanese and that it would be infeasible for Capcom to give Blue Castle tech support. Can't remember where I read that but think it was an interview with Sven maybe.

So I kinda want to pick up Assassin's Creed III, but I've yet to finish Brohood or Revelations. Should I just skip to ACIII or bother finishing those two first and pick it up later?

Why? Play through the other two since it sounds like you own them.

Pick up ACIII when its cheap. Its not like that is a good price, And its UPLAY.

AC3's one of the worst big budget games ever made, and this is coming from someone who has liked the series despite all of its very many flaws up until that game. Brotherhood and Revelations are solid games, although they're not as good as 2 was.

It's not just the documentation that's in Japanese, MT Frameworks entire user interface is in Japanese. MT Frameworks is a proprietary tool developed by their Japanese studios for their Japanese studios with no forethought for making it a tool they can license out or lend to their sub-contracted developers abroad for work on games Capcom is publishing.

That's partially why DmC was made with Unreal.

The price isn't really that bad. That's about as cheap as it's ever been on consoles, and it's the best version.

I've kinda gotten over the whole Uplay thing, to be honest. I know it's not a good business practice and I'd prefer it didn't have it, but it would almost never affect me. Never did with Anno 2070 or HOMM VI.

Also, I heard that ACIII was pretty great, and I'm sorta getting tired of the ever-increasing list of Italian names that I can't keep track of.

I still may hold off. I dunno.

Nope, but even if there were it'd only be to the order of 20%, meaning you'd be shaving just a buck off the current price of Primal Carnage.

You missed the fact that both Portal and Zelda was outright sampled earlier on in the set.

You heard wrong. The ending is particularly awful: Minerva and Juno are at odds with what Desmond must do to save the world. Desmond sides with Juno. Desmond touches an ancient globe. Desmond falls over. ~fin. Half a decade of narrative build-up for... that.

Guys, I'm really tempted to get QUBE and To The Moon.
The first one cuz I met one of the developers and he sold me the game (lol) and the other since it has a good background (story and gameplay), apparently. But it seems that TTM is not a Steam key on GMG, is it? Link!

Thoughts? :/

Yeah, but I've been curious enough that a Steam sale impulse buy sounds about right, especially considering it'll have a better framerate.

No it's a horrid Capsule game. Slowest downloads ever. Says this only the last line of sys reqs.

It still might be, depending on how soon they want to release LoS1 and when pre-orders for LoS2 will be up.

Because I already have and finished it on the 360, so I'm not planning on wasting 20 bucks on a game I already finished and don't plan on re-playing it anytime soon.

However, I really do want to buy and play Lords of Shadow 2 on PC, so I'm buying that as soon as it's out (mostly to show Konami that I want games on PC), so that would be a nice bonus for me.

Sure, that's not good business for Konami... but I really don't care.. :D
